Shipping Policy

When you shop Our Store, you help support a non-profit rescue because 100% of all proceeds are put into a fund to provide for the rescued chinchillas' daily and medical needs.


SHIPPING NOTICE: I ship orders by USPS Priority Mail throughout the US (including Alaska & Hawaii). I will refund any over charge of shipping fees that exceed one dollar. Orders are normally shipped in the sequence they are received. Custom made items may take longer to make and ship. The holiday season may delay shipping simply because of the volume of orders received. I do not have a staff, I personally box all orders and drive them to the post office myself. I try to get orders shipped within 2-3 days of receiving them, however that is not always possible. Weekends and Holidays can affect postal shipping times. Also, weather in the Northeast does not always cooperate during the winter months, so inclement weather can delay getting your order out. The chinchillas always come first here and if things are very busy, orders will be filled and shipped as soon as possible. I'm sure you understand as we are all chinchilla lovers and want the best for them. Your patronage and patience is greatly appreciated!

Please Note: Based on destination, if your order size and weight are large, we may have to ship by Standard Ground Post. Because PayPal shipping system is far from perfect, extra shipping charge may apply in some cases. You will be sent an invoice through PayPal for any extra shipping fee due.

Bridge Orders: All our bridges are custom made when you order one, which may take a day or two to put together. Because destinations vary and shipping weight varies, you will NOT see a shipping charge for a bridge on your order. If you order other items along with a bridge, your invoice will reflect the shipping charge for the other items you ordered. Until I get your order all boxed up, whether you order just a bridge or other items along with a bridge, you WILL BE INVOICED separately for the bridge through PayPal.

Canadian & International Orders: You will not see a shipping fee on your initial order. You will be invoiced separately for shipping fees through PayPal. This is done to get a more accurate fee. Any package weighing more than 4 pounds must be shipped by Priority Mail per Postal Regulations. That can often double shipping fees, so please keep that in mind when ordering items.

We are obligated to charge all CT residents 6.35% sales tax.
